An old friend posted on his Facebook status that he is discovering Bruce Springsteen. It reminded me of one of my favorite songs, Tunnel of Love. As I listened to the song my skin crawled and the world around me blurred. I felt as if I was back in the early years of my college sojourn, the happiest time of my life before all the pain, love and loss came into it.

You've got to learn to live with what you can't rise above
If you want to ride on down in through this tunnel of love

  1. Sometimes I look at the young girls and think, if you want to stay this carefree...don't fall in love!

    Of course this is very silly of me. I know. Nobody can remain in this carefree state, no matter what they do or don't do. And there is not a a more effective "rite of passage" than riding through the tunnel of love...

    But I can't help thinking like this sometimes.
